Noted in Passing: Green Lies Continue


[NB: Subscribe. This guy’s good and needs the encouragement]

Welcome to Clown World.

And the clown show continues. Here’s a more recent story featured on both CNN and FOX News, “A huge swirling pile of trash in the Pacific Ocean is growing faster than expected and is now three times the size of France…”

Oh really? Three times the size of France? How was this verified? Did someone go out there with a tape measure? No.

Did the International Space Station record footage as it orbited overhead? No.

NASA satellite Imagery? No.

US Navy Reconnaissance? No.

Google Maps Satellite view? No.

National Geographic Special Report? No.

And where the hell is Jacques Cousteau when you need him? (Died in 1997 I’m afraid).

There is NO evidence of this damned thing. Just drawings, assertions, phony composites, and scary stories, endlessly repeated. What started as a bullshit article written by Captain Moore has now mushroomed into tales of FIVE Great Garbage Patches.

A story founded on bullshit, wrapped in dog-shit, piled on cat-shit. Before hyping up five, how about some REAL evidence of one?

    It’s getting so bad I know you must be thinking about doing something about the sudden Span attack, but please, pretty please don’t activate recaptcha.

      Oh I’ll just pick em off when I see them.

    I seem to remember, back in the before times, we used to burn the plastic and paper trash. People said “Evil Pollution” and so engineers and science guys worked diligently and were doing a pretty good job of making scrubbers for the smokestacks. Voila! Clean air! But it wasn’t satisfactory to the greenies. So the projects were shut down and abandoned.
    But–if we had kept at it, we would’ve had better scrubbers and cleaner air and the plastic and paper could’ve been burned and the heat used to run turbines or whatever to make electricity.
    And we could run our electric cars on trash. And added more power to the grid.
    But if we were smart enough to do that, we probably would’ve built more nuke plants, too.

      There was a company something like that. I invested, back in the 80s when i was single, had wads of cash and investing was fun. Then something political happened, the company went belly up, lost my dough, and never heard any more. The inter webs is not giving it up. Molten Metal, it’s demise had something to do with Massachusetts, there’s a surprise.

    I am old enough to remember that silly screed from the pompously named Club of Rome, “The Limits to Growth (1974).” It was all the rage in college. All sorts of predictions about economic collapse, the running out of resources and such were contained within its pages. None came true. And let us not forget Paul Ehrlich’s “The Population Bomb (1970)”, a Malthusian tome that contained ridiculous assumptions about human nature and the “carrying capacity” of the earth. Again, all false.

    Incidentally, these books are on Amazon for more than $500 each. Any takers?

    That garbage and the “Great Garbage Patch” are in a similar vein. And remember disappearing polar bears? How about the vanishing Amazon jungle?

    Environmentalists, like Social Justice Warriors, always lie. Always.

    Now, let’s talk about how much the Marxists just loooove the environment. Is a clean environment good for the State? The answer is: no. Then fuk the environment!

    See how easy this shit is? Next slide.

    But if you read the article down to paragraph 7 you discover most of it comes from China.

    I may have mentioned it before somewhere else but back in 70-74 I was in the Navy, assigned to a fighter squadron that was assigned to the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA-42). Made several Med and North Atlantic cruises, etc. When we were deployed and at sea typically each day an announcement “The fantail is now open” would be broadcasted throughout the ship and every shop and department, every office and shop would send personnel with sacked up trash and garbage, chemicals, glues, paints, paint thinners, broken this or that, food and refuse and throw them from the rear of the ship.

    Every ship in the Navy did it and the trail of garbage extended for miles behind in our wake. Russian trawlers would trail behind us scooping up stuff to ramble through it for secrets, just as a matter of course.

    Even at the young age of 22 I hated doing that and I hated it that the Navy did not have some type of trash incineration system aboard. It bragged that it could, and it seemed capable of meeting any other challenge or threat but the idiots-in-charge mandated the garbage over the side without the first consideration or thought that our deleterious would wash up on the shores of the beautiful islands of the Aegean or Ionian seas, showing us to be what we really are.

    Back in the eighties, when I was working for Big Oil on the North Slope, raping and pillaging Alaska, A film crew, National Geographic if I remember right, came up to document how we villains were utterly destroying the wonderful, pristine environment.

    Their main focus was on a small lake next to the hotel in Deadhorse. The imagery they ended up screening suggested the whole lake was covered with floating garbage the roughnecks and roustabouts obviously threw therein. Actually it was about a ten square foot area on the leeward side of the lake and yes there was trash blow in and collecting there. A trash collection small enough it could be cleaned up once a week by one person in about 15 minutes at the most as was the practice at the time.

    It’s all in the POV, the camera angle.

      Dirk-
      And let us never forget the National Geographic “documentary” on lemmings- how they went kamikaze-style by the millions right off cliffs into the ocean below.

      Then it was later exposed that they were corralled and “pushed” by humans filming the documentary.
      Lyin’ bastards….

    So in essence, we’re talking about exactly the same thing as the wuhan covid bullshit pandemic eh!

  • Mhf September 5, 2021, 10:56 AM

    Now do farting cows! The dumbasses always talking about the cattle farmers polluting the environment, like millions of buffalos never farted or crapped out in the open.
    Oh and the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. Like the largest fresh water river system in the world emptying into salt water is some kind of paradise.

    We know their lying, cuz their lips are moving! I’ve read of this garbage pile, in sailing magazines. As noted each article sited different sources the pile came from. The one I thought mayyy have merit was Japan after the tidal Wave many years ago. Which was about the time the sailing mags came out with the stories.

    Having lived in South East Asia in the late 70s, I recall all kinds of trash washing out to sea, via rivers. Hong Kong, PI, Thailand, Korea. Not so much in “ then” Singapore, Aus or Japan.

    Recall going to the mainland from Hong Kong, seeing hundreds of thousand of Junks tied to each other. Was told by the fairy driver that most of those boat people had never set foot on land. They did everything in the ocean, poop, pee, garbage, bath.

    Found that life style fascinating.

    Here’s a cold, hard FACT for all the greenies and enviro-Nazis.
    Guess what?
    The Ocean actually acts as the Earth’s own gigantic septic tank. That’s how Nature works, so get over it.

    Oh, and I looked REAL hard to find that “humongous plastic island” on satellite and Google earth. Didn’t see a damn thing. And gee, I wonder how many billions of Covid masks have ended up in the ocean?
